Two German men who converted to Islam appeared at England's Old Bailey criminal court on Monday, charged with having a computer and hard drive that contained information that could be of use in terrorism.

Christian Emde and Robert Baum of Solingen, Germany, were arrested at the port of Dover on England's southeast coast on July 15. Emde was charged with four additional offenses under Britain's Terrorism Act relating to alleged articles with titles such as “Destroying Buildings and Make A Bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom.”

The pair appeared in court wearing black prayer caps and both refused to stand up for the judge when he entered the courtroom.

They will next appear in court in December to enter a plea and were remanded to custody to face trial in February of 2012.
